Joy of joys, after a really long spell of gloomy, wet and windy weather, today there was sunshine in my little corner of the countryside. Overnight there had been a fairly hard frost and the fields were white and sparkled in the winter sun. Simple things, but they make me very happy.
On the crafting side of life, today I would like to share a project using Claritystamp stamp set Doodleology Square Mixed Impressions and the matching stencil.
Once again I have used dye based inks for this project. I began by brushing a pale colour through the stencil - it is quite an intricate stencil, so I needed to hold each section in place as I worked, in order to retain crisp lines. Then I stamped the image in black archival ink on another piece of card. There are small infill stamps in this set which I have used to colour the white areas to co-ordinate with the background piece. Keeping it clean and simple I have mat and layered with white card onto a white base card.
If you have time I would love to hear what you think (please be nice!) by leaving me a comment.
